Throwing a royal party can be easy (and affordable!) It’s all about the details!
When my daughter asked to have a Sleeping Beauty party I was excited! It left so much room for creativity, whether we channeled Princess Aurora, Sleeping Beauty or Brier Rose it was all going to be about the decor and details. Since Sleeping Beauty isn’t as popular as Elsa or Ariel it also allowed for TONS of creativity, which if you follow along with From Wine to Whine you know that is right up me and my big kids alley!!
So to start, we watched the movie a dozen times, and then I went onto the Oriental Trading and started shopping. They have supplies for every occasion. So I was able to find the perfect disposable (yet glamorously affordable) party supplies!
You will need…
Give guests a kiss with gummy candy lips!
And if you really want to impress your royal guests have them blow a kiss on a magical lip whistle! It makes a real life Princess appear!
For those of you that live in New Jersey I used Pretty Princess Jersey for my princess needs and she was wonderful! Princess Aurora read Sleeping Beauty to the kids, played games, popped magical bubbles, took photos, and she even cut the cake! It was better then I could’ve dreamed (once upon a dream, get it? 😉 )
But my favorite part was when the kids “wished” for the Princess to arrive. Once I knew she was at my house I brought the kids a basket filled with whistles and a note from the fairies asking them to make a wish and blow a whistle kiss! Once they completed the task Princess Aurora appeared! When my daughter saw her she yelled, “See Mom, I told you she was real. I wished for her and she came! I knew I could do it” It melted my evil heart. If you are hiring a character to come to your party I highly recommend having the kids get involved in some way to summon them to the event! I received my whistles from Oriental Trading because they have a HUGE variety of whistles, so no matter what character you decide to have I’m sure you can find something to fit your theme!
As you can see throwing a royal party is all about the little details, luckily Oriental Trading is full of goodies to make party planning easy! Just about all of my supplies came from them, from the castle backdrop to the gold silver ware, magical wands, lip whistles and even the sweet lip candies! They are affordable and it’s easy since it all shows up at your house!
